Brooklyn Borough Hall will be awash in green lights tonight in remembrance of the victims and families affected by the bombings at the Boston Marathon.
Borough President Marty Markowitz announced the lighting in a statement, explaining that it is a way to show that “Brooklyn’s thoughts and prayers are with the city of Boston and all of those who were killed or injured by the bombings at the Boston Marathon. . . As Americans always have in the past, we will find strength in the face of adversity and we will recover from this atrocity, but we will forever commemorate and remember the victims and their families.”
This will be the second public display of Brooklyn’s solidarity with Boston. Last night (Monday night), an impromptu light installation was projected onto the side of the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), courtesy of activism-meets-art group The Illuminator and the Occupy Wall Street Light Brigade.
